      About "Last Year's Troubles"

      Lyrics for Suzanne Vega - "Last Year's Troubles"

      Last year's troubles are so old fashioned
      The robber on the highway the pirate on the seas
      Maybe it's the clothing that's so entertaining
      The earrings and swashbuckling blouses that please

      Here we have heroes of times that have passed now
      But nobody these days has that kind of chin
      Over there the petticoats of ladies of virtue
      You can hardly tell them from the petticoats of sin

      Last year's troubles
      Look at all the waifs of Dickensian England
      Why is it their suffering is more picturesque?
      Must be cause their rags are so very Victorian
      The ones here at home just don't give it their best

      Last years troubles they shine up so pretty
      They gleam with a luster they don't have today
      Here it's just dirty and violent and troubling

      Last year's troubles
      But trouble is still trouble and evil still evil
      Sometimes we wonder; is there more now, or less?
      If we had a tool or could tally the handfuls
      Measure for measure it's the same would be my guess
